sequestration had been signed into law. now, we didn't reach an agreement because republicans refused to include revenue, but we did agree then that deficit reduction to replace sequestration was deficit reduction. in fact, my colleague, senator toomey, put forward a plan to replace sequestration, to replace sequestration that he said would have -- quote -- "reduced our deficit by $1.2 trillion. mr. president, i find it odd that some republicans were willing to count replacing sequestration as deficit reduction when they were putting forth plans to do it, but they won't treat the senate budget the same way, especially since bipartisan groups including simpson-bowles and domenici-rivlin and the committee for responsible federal budgeting all used the same starting point that the senate budget does. like us, these groups know sequestration was not deficit reduction. it was there to trigger deficit reduction that would come from replacing it. that was the whole point. in fact, the center on budget and policy priorities noted that the senate budget uses the appropriate starting point, and i quote --

's the wrong thing for economic stability. it's the wrong kind of plan if made into law to help us grow our economy, create jobs, create wealth, get people over time and bonuses and pay raises, the kind of thing you have when the economy's growing. this budget is just the wrong medicine. i just have to say i strongly, strongly believe that it takes us in the wrong direction. what does it do at bottom? it raises taxes. it raises taxes, according to the chairman, by 1 point -- $1 trillion, $985 billion -- billion dollars. that's almost a trillion -- and we think it raises it $1.5 trillion. there is a reserve fund to make it easy to raise more taxes. i ask the chair to close that so it couldn't be used to raise taxes easily and see a decline which would continue to cause me to believe that that is an additional part. but regardless, a trillion dollars of new taxes is a huge, huge tax increase. in january of this year, the president got a $650 billion big tax increase on the rich. and so this is a huge additional tax cut. plus a trillion in tax cuts in the president's health care bill. so we ar
as clearly is the job that's destroyed when government first pulls that dollar out. we see those laws -- lost jobs as chronic unemployment and a stagnating economy. every $1 billion spent in washington means taking $9 from an average family. oother in direct taxes -- either in direct taxes or tax-driven price increases as businesses pass along their cost to consumers. that means that $1 trillion of new taxes that the senate has proposed means $9,000 per family. now we're told, don't worry, that's all paid by businesses. but businesses don't pay business taxes. they only collect them. they pass them on to us as consumers through higher prices, to us as employees through lower wages or to us as investors through lower earnings, usually on our 401-k's. $1 trillion of deficit as we ran up last year really means $9,000 of future taxes for every family , robbing our children of their futures. it's about time we started thinking in these numbers as families size to terms because ultimately these numbers have a very real impact on families who were struggling to balance their own budgets, to set thei

of this juncture. at the beginning, when we were traditional -- transitional administrative law and later on when the peace was negotiated, there was an assumption that the players were going to abide by the rules. this assumption was wrong. some had no intention of abiding. they went along, but as soon as they got into power, they started flouting the rules, blatantly. , it is stateditly in the constitution of certain institutions are independent, like the central bank. the law made clear that it was independent of the government. was the head of the media committee, and restructured a media commission that was intended to be independent. all of these have been reined in and the auspices and the control of the prime minister have done it on the basis of, well, these all have some executive functions and therefore they should be part of it. they are abusing the semantic definition. that really means a kind of of allng of the power these institutions, which are the guardians of the democratic system. , what do weave gone have for this democracy? the americans should make it clear where they stand
this house was led by democrats, and you can see the laws that they have passed and the amazing amount of spending that it would place upon our country. we don't even show in here individually where social security is that will go bankrupt. medicare, bankrupt. medicaid, insolvent. our inability to be able to pay or our future by creating jobs today. the free enterprise system is exactly what republicans support and believe in because that is the american dream. not government spending and government jobs. but rather a vibrant free enterprise system whereby there are employers who want to hire people to become employees to have careers, to then make this country better and stronger. the way you do that is by lowering government spending. by having a public-private partnership not by having the federal government be responsible for everything from a one-size-fits all health care industry to government control of every part of our lives. yesterday paul ryan very effectively, i believe, came before the house rules committee nd talked about a vision forward. what's very interesting is every
is against gale marriage. they're called scary, and the platform backs strict voting laws. this is a party that's out of touch with reality. joining me now is congresswoman jan schakowsky, and dana milbank, column irs, first, thank you. >> this does signal a shift for the party on immigration, but how can they possibly say their principles are sound? >> well, there's no way. they haven't talked much about principles. we're going to see some of their principles tomorrow when they vote on a budget that's going to change medicare into a voucher program, a dramatic cut in education, programs for children, medicaid, the health care program for poor people, and so it's hard to understand how they retreat from being really scary, and of course there's not going to be one penny of cuts to the wealthiest of americans tomorrow, and so being the stuffy old men, i kind of translate that into a rich and stuffy old, old men, and their solutions are absolutely ridiculous. i understand for young people they decided that they need to do more celebrity concerts and events. i'm wondering who they're going to

about the criminal networks we're facing. it is our law enforcement combined with the military facing these criminal networks. are these nations who are working with the criminal networks on the other side who are partners with them in a number of these efforts, and what can be done in regards to that? whoever wants to take the first crack at that. >> with the exception of a couple of possibilities, i'm positive there are no government -- there are no governments that are supportive, but there are high officials within governments that are supportive. many of them for their own personal corruption purposes, but i think a few of them to make life a little more difficult for the united states. i don't want to get into the detail in an open hearing. think john is absolutely correct. this points to another real concern about these networks. on ourt just the impact population and youth using narcotics, the profits are used to corrupt officials and that undermines these fragile democracies. nameld be hard pressed to a state that was an identified narcos state. there are officials throughout
support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. i support it personally and as a matter of policy and law. >> while the announcement itself was less than shocking, it symbolized a much larger shift in public opinion. a new "washington post"/abc news poll released yesterday shows that public support for gay marriage is at an all-time high, 58% of americans support it. as do 81% of young adults. ten years ago, only 37% of americans supported same-sex marriage. but if the winds of change are blowing, some parts of the gop have yet to feel them. the same poll showed that only 34% of republicans support same-sex marriage, compared to 72% of democrats, and 62% of independents. and last week at cpac, the schism within the gop was thrown into sharp relief as brian brown, president of the national organization for marriage found himself voicing opposition to gay marriage in front of an empty room. memo to republicans and actually anyone on planet earth -- if you find yourself making an argument to a room full of empty chairs, it might be time to change your strategy. james, i want to go you first
and the president has signed into law approximately $2.4 trillion in deficit reduction through 2022, not including the sequester and to reach the goal, we need an additional $1.6 trillion in deficit reduction. so working off the c.b.o.'s baseline, we first instruct the ways and means committee to enhance receive news by $2.7 trillion over the next 10 years. that is not an extraordinary figure. just a few weeks ago, we passed a $3.9 trillion extension in tax cuts. so going back over that and coming up with $2.7 trillion is within the realm of possibility. we just don't make the number up. we show $4.2 trillion in possible options in coming up with the $2.7 trillion. that would include limiting the deductibility of corporate interest payments and numerous tax breaks that corporations enjoy. money can be raised by capital gains taxed for ordinary income without a special benefit. surcharge of 5.4% on that portion of your income over $1 million. speculators' tax, reducing the extension of tax cuts down to the first $250,000, rather than $450,000 of income and several other specific recommendations tha
of years. john boehner said, it's the law of the land. he walked that back afterwards, but that is what he is thinking. this is a fight that will take place in policy documents and political documents like ryan budget but when it comes to funding -- voting on bills that will become law, obamacare -- >> this continuing resolution does not have funding for bom a bomb -- for obamacare. >> it won't. >> they will find a deal to fund it through other monies, they will not crimp it, obama will not sign thinking that will slow it down. >> we will track it, i have to jump, this is a big fed day, stocks generally liked what they heard from ben bernanke, i wonder if he was signaling a little let easy money, that is my take next up on kudlow. there's this island -- and it's got super-cute kangaroos. barrow island has got rare kangaroos. ♪ chevron has been developing energy here for decades. we need to protect their environment. we have a strict quarantine system to protect the integrity of the environment. forty years on, it's still a class-a nature reserve. it's our job to look after them. ...it's

the letter of the law than in a place like cyprus and the european union and over let issue is the country and seeing whether or not they can back fdic insurance and we don't have that problem at this point. >> cyprus is hoping to raise money from their bank deposit tax because when the banks do open up and they're closed until thursday. if you're a russian oligarch with $1 billion in a cypriot bank account that is facing a 9.9% tax above 100,000 euros you are going to pull that out and go to jersey -- not new jersey, the cayman islands. >> and they will have it. >> they say it will be one time. >> they'll raise 10 billion and 20 billion. >> they'll come back and that's the issue. >> no, they won't. they'll raise 10 or 20 billion in a one-time move and they'll lose hundreds of billions and the european markets will wipe out hundreds of billions in capital. >> they're doing what they need to do to raise the 5.8 billion euros to get the imf and ecb bailout and they'll deal with the consequences tomorrow. >> this is the old imf. when the imf came to korea in the '90s. when the imf came to lat
the respect of rule of law. that said, what we see in cypress, there's a government big enough to give you everything, that's big enough to take it all. >> what chance of con they onhere? so longer or later, the banks reopen, and when they do, odds are people want their money out. will people in spain and italy think the same and get their money out as well. is there a risk here? >> well, this is the whole story of the european, of this european crisis is this. it looks like the big fear is whatever happens in the country, the collapse in the country, whatever form it takes will triller panic in other countries, spain, italy, and even the french. i mean, the big french banks are in big trouble, not really on safe grounds, and so i think there is a real contagious issue. there is, also, i guess, a seed of anxiety in countries thinking, oh, wait a second. a deposit can be addressed in other countries, and if the european union or the imf is demanding this type of payment for bailouts, are we next? >> yeah, got it. thank you very much for joining us as always. thank you very much. >> thanks f
of the matter is that the law states that the president of the united states is required to present a budget to congress by the first monday in february. that was the first monday in february, we are six weeks beyond that, the president has flagrantly, flagrantly ignored his statutory responsibility to bring to the united states congress a budget. now some folks on the other side say, it happens all the time. don't worry about that. it happens all the time. well, as a matter of fact, mr. chairman, just one term, president obama has missed the budget deadline more than any other president. he's now missed it four out of five times. in the 90 years between 1923 and 2013, president obama is the only president to miss the deadline two years in a row. he's the only president who missed the deadline three out of four years in his first term and he holds the record for the longest delay, 98 days, maybe he's -- maybe that's the record, he's trying to beat. so i want to commend again my colleagues in the congressional black caucus for bringing forward a budget. i think it's extremely important that w
rewarding them for breaking the line or breaking the law. without rewarding them for cutting in front of the line so they don't have a special and unique pathway so that those who came here legally who paid the fines and waited patiently are not penalized by letting people cut in front of them. i think there is a way to do this and i would call it earned legalization status. i think there is a way to do that. i think the rubio reforms -- >> is it just legalization status or eventually under certain conditions citizenship? >> well, sure. i'm just saying no special pathway for rewarding lawmakers. i think there is a way of regularizing this process so people can get in the back of the line and become a citizen just like anybody else does in society. we just don't want to reward them by giving them an advancement in the line in front of all the people who have been waiting patiently and playing by the rules. >> do you support any new restrictions on guns? >> well, i think the loophole issue is one that is going to be debated here in the house, which is are we getting at the fact that peo
